    My 34 chief has cast iron heads with angled spark plugs and the priming cups and tank primer.
    I believe primers were gone in 35.No extra heads.

    Tom if you look on page 42 of hatfields original book it states. "1934 heads the primer boss was there but un-drilled, also the left hand gas cap does not have the priming syringe", Chris

    Hey Chris .There are a lot of errors in that book along with all the great info and no 34 chief photo.There is also a list of corrections he published.
    Pg 50 ,35 changes,primer injector gone.
    My 34 was pretty complete original and I have the primers.
    Running changes were also made so maybe the latest 34s didnt have them.Mine is in the late 1400s witch I beleive is probably towards the end.

    Tom, now I am really curious , I have a list of Hatfields corrections and there's no mention of the heads from page 42, although you are right page 42 charts says syringe gone and so does page 50?? it also mentions the y motor having primers? I am going to call Kent Thompson and see what his has, I really strive to build my bikes correct, thanks for the information, I will post what Kent says, Chris
